Visit Mongolia, a place of untouched beauty. This wild land is defined by its rugged terrain, vast expanse of blue sky, and fascinating culture rooted in ancient traditions. It is a place where there are more horses than people and where a nomadic lifestyle still reigns.

Bordering Siberia, the northern region is home to pristine Lake Hovsgol, known as Mongolia’s “dark blue pearl.” Believed to be several million years old, Mongolia’s deepest freshwater lake is surrounded by dozens of small rivers and streams that empty into its waters, pristine taiga forest, and valleys and meadows rich with wildflowers. Northern Mongolia is also home to the nomadic Tsaatan, members of a small Tuvinian ethnic group who have herded domesticated reindeer for centuries. Their culture has changed little since the Ice Age, and like many of Mongolia’s nomads, shamanism plays an important role in their lives.

Western Mongolia is a place of unspoiled wilderness, where the snow-capped Altai Mountains tower above remote forests, lakes, and rivers. Teeming with wildlife, including endangered snow leopards and antelope, this region contains the most impressive of Mongolia’s mountain scenery, and is a prime destination for adventurous climbers and hikers. The Altai Mountains are also the place to experience some of Mongolia’s most fascinating cultures. Bayan-Ulgii Province, which borders Russia and China, is home to a diverse population whose traditional ways of life have been preserved in these isolated mountains for centuries. Among these is Mongolia’s largest ethnic minority, the Kazakhs, whose ancestors migrated to the area in the 1800s, and whose proud tradition of hunting with trained eagles is celebrated annually at the renowned Golden Eagle Festival, founded by Nomadic Expeditions Founder and CEO, Jalsa Urubshurow.

Central Mongolia is perhaps best known for Ulaanbaatar, the fascinating capital city where past and present live in harmony. In addition to its natural wonders, there are many historical sights to be explored in Mongolia’s heartland, particularly in the Orkhon River Valley, which contains archaeological remains dating back several centuries. Few traces remain of Kharakhorum, the 13th-century capital of the Mongol Empire, but the nearby temple of Erdene Zuu was reputedly built from its ruins.

Southern Mongolia is synonymous with the magnificent Gobi Desert. It is in this startlingly beautiful place with vastly alternate regions and diversified ecosystems that Nomadic Expeditions chose to build our award-winning Three Camel Lodge. Visit Mongolia’s magnificent sand dunes of Hongoryn Els, also known as “The Singing Sands,” for the sound emitted when the wind blows. Tugrugiin Shiree is best known for its famous fossil find, the “Fighting Dinosaurs,” which contains the skeletal remains of a Protoceratops and Velociraptor locked in deadly combat. The Flaming Cliffs are a must-see. Dr. Roy Chapman Andrews of the American Museum of Natural History gave these glorious cliffs their name because of the brilliant orange glow at sunrise and sunset. He also discovered the world’s first nest of dinosaur eggs here, cementing the Gobi’s reputation as a rich paleontological resource. From lush green valleys to regions rich with wildlife, the Gobi will earn a place in your heart forever.
